had an old Earthlink email account become compromised so had to shut it down. Installed a new email address (non-Earthlink) in Thunderbird. Everything worked fine, had (2) email accounts showing the old email account and my new email account. The old email address continued to try to contact my compromised email address. So I decided to try to inactivate/remove it from the sidebar. I mistakenly ended up removing the email account and all of my old emails (that I was wanting to save/keep in Thunderbird). Is there a way to restore the deleted emails (Inbox / Sent / Trash) from the old (shut down) email account?

I'm not sure if this is a general bug in the latest beta, or some other maybe known problem that just happened to get triggered by the update, but since I updated to 94.0b1, about every two minutes the status bar and the activity manager show TB 'bringing folder Inbox up to date' and re-downloading the last 42 emails in one account and 19 in another, which are the most used of the 6 accounts I have configured in TB. This is just going on every two minutes, hour after hour, day after day, with the number being re-fetched in each of the two accounts increasing by one after each actual new email arrives. (Of the other 4 accounts, 3 haven't had a new email since the issue started, but one has had one new email per day, but is not showing this every-two-minute re-fetching.) This is not re-fetching all of the emails in the two affected accounts - both mailboxes contain about 11000 emails - but probably just the emails that have come since the issue started. TB HAS downloaded those emails as I've opened and looked at or read every single one, but nevertheless every two minutes I get the 'bringing folder inbox up to date' for both of the two accounts. I have tried both compacting and repairing both folders (although it doesn't actually display anything to show me TB has actually done either of those things), but that didn't make any difference.

Does anyone know if this is a widespread 94.0b1 bug, so I just need to wait for it to be fixed in (hopefully) the next beta? Or is this a known glitch that cna appear in TB with a known fix?

Thanks.

The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

After updating to v. 91 about 2 weeks ago I now noticed that two local folders became draft folders and ALL messages stored there are now "drafts", including all received messages. I did NOT change any account settings. The two folders are among those that I use most frequently.

How can I revert the attributes of these two folders to "normal" local folders again so that the messages stored there are "final" and not "drafts"? Thank you.

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

I have 4 PCs, all are Windows 10 Pro, version 21H1. All have installed Thunderbird 91.2.0 x64. On all, I am using the Sophos Endpoint Security virus protection.

All PCs but one are working OK with Thunderbird. Recently I changed the password of one of my gmail.com accounts. On three PCs I could update the password settings in Thunderbird without issues. On the fourth, it just didn't accept the new password. So I deleted the account on that PC and tried to recreate it. It worked to the point where I clicked the 'Done' button in the Account Setup dialog and logged into my Google account and clicked 'Allow' to enable Thunderbird to access the Google mail account. At that moment 'Checking password' message changed to 'Unable to login at server' on a yellow background in the Account Setup dialog. On that same PC, I can access Gmail through the web interface without trouble.

When trying to solve the issue I uninstalled the Thunderbird, removed its folders in Local and Roaming folders, then reset the PC and installed the Thunderbird again. The issue was not solved. I can't configure any of the Google accounts, but I have no trouble with the two non-Google IMAP accounts that I have.

Just to make sure, I tried to delete and then recreate a Google account on one of the PCs which seem to work OK and that worked without a glitch.

I also tested the 'problem' PC and was not able to detect any issues except the one with the Thunderbird.

Subfolders don't highlight on new messages if parent folder is not expanded (dark theme)

Using Dark Theme

As of version 91 (currently running 91.2.0, build 20211004152603), parent folders highlight (bold and colored blue) when a new message arrives in it or any of the subfolders inside it. If the parent folder is expanded when the email arrives, the subfolder will also highlight. If the parent folder is closed when the new mail arrives, the subfolder will not be bold or colored when the parent folder is expanded. If I click on the subfolder, it will show up bold, but not colored.

For example, parent folder not expanded, currently 1 unread message in subfolder B: parent folder (1) - bold. Shows unread msg count for this and all subfolders

Expanding parent folder shows: parent folder - No message count (expected, since individual subfolders show message count), not bold or colored -> subfolder A -> subfolder B (1) - currently has unread message. Shows as bold, but not colored

With parent folder collapsed, new message arrives in subfolder A. Parent folder now shows unread message count for tree, and is bold and colored. parent folder (2) - bold. Shows unread msg count for this and all subfolders

Expanding parent folder shows: parent folder - No message count (expected, since individual subfolders show message count), not bold or colored -> subfolder A (1) - unread message count shows in parens, but *not colored or bold* -> subfolder B (1) - still bold, not colored

With parent folder expanded, new message arrives in subfolder A. parent folder - No message count (expected, since individual subfolders show message count), not bold or colored -> subfolder A (1) - highlighted (colored and bold), unread message count shows in parens -> subfolder B (1) - still bold, not colored

Two Oct 2017 microprocessor chipset vulnerabilities have been used on phones manufactured through July 2019, that allow Foreign Bad Actor APT groups to develop cofe, based on reverse engineered Open Source code, to download multiple apps, including browsets, GBoard and other alternative keyboards, and communications apps (Gmail, text and messaging, phone ) applications.

These copy apps run in the OS at startup (using a thumbnail hackede Opera version - but not the expected Opera Mini version for Android), and are oberved as duplicates when clearing app cache, as repeating application responses to a command. They also appear as phantom duplicate app notifications, in Rent Apps List toggles, and hidden apps in hacked desktop Launchers)

The malware payload launcher may also be appended to poorly written apps, from third party app stores, but also from malware originating from Chinese made inexpensive phones with continued 2017 chipset vulnerabilities, eg older chipsets not soft patched or replaced eith hardcoded newer code.

Therefore, we suspect tens of millions of compromised phones are in use. These phones leak small communication pack streams of scavenged user information while the phone is on, regardless of hacked Launcher UI status indicator (off) and through hacked BlueTooth and Nearby Share applications using javascript and Lineux remote toggles, that can activate and use camera and microphones to record user calls and environment.

Perhaps authenticator checks buried in code, could alert users of duplicated browsers, as all other FF privacy protections are nulled by these hijacks.

Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?
